Breakfast Blueberry-Oatmeal Cakes

YIELD 6 servings


ACTIVE TIME 15 minutes

TOTAL TIME 55 minutes (plus 8-12 hours soaking time)

This oatmeal-meets-muffin-tin cake recipe is perfect for having a healthy breakfast available on busy weekdays. Make a batch on the weekend and keep them in your freezer. For a grab-and-go breakfast, reheat the oatmeal cakes in the microwave for about 40 seconds.


  • 2½ cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1½ cups low-fat milk
  • 1 large egg lightly beaten
  • ⅓ cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup blueberries, fresh or frozen


  1. Combine oats and milk in a large bowl. Cover and let soak in the refrigerator until much of the liquid is absorbed at least 8 hours and up to 12 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat a 12-cup nonstick muffin tin with cooking spray.
  3. Stir egg, maple syrup, oil, vanilla, cinnamon, baking powder and salt into the soaked oats until well combined. Divide the mixture among the muffin cups (about 1/4 cup each). Top each with 1 tablespoon blueberries.
  4. Bake the oatmeal cakes until they spring back when touched, 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Loosen and remove with a paring knife. Serve warm.



  • Wrap airtight and refrigerate for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 3 months.


  • Nonstick muffin tin with 12 (1/2-cup) cups


  • People with celiac disease or gluten-sensitivity should use oats that are labeled “gluten-free,” as oats are often cross-contaminated with wheat and barley.
